Uhe publication m The Times of ex
tracts fiom Senor Dupuy de Lome's book,
in whlrh he sijs very disagreeable things
of American men and women, has caused
much gossip here His words have been
taken up aud commented upon, both at
home and in the clubs It has been asked
again and again whj a man who holds
such views should be permitted to live
among a people whom he has so abused
Xo one has cared to be quoted because it
is felt that the proper cliaunel for the
expression of disapprobation is through
the Sum- Department, but there is talk
or indignation meetings aud formal pio
test. 'Hie reeling of irritation grows with
Senor De Lome's continued attitude of
indifference He evades the question in
a way which indicates that he still holds
the views expressed In his book.
UK friends and defenders maintain that
the book was written when lie was i
joung nnn, some Lwentj vears ago, and
that he no longer holds the vie-ws then
expressed, but nobod seems to know
when tlie volumeresillj first appeared, and
it is spoken of as recentlj published.
However, that makes little difference, in
view ol libs practical indorsement; at ihrs
tim of whit he wrote then
He w rote that he had been told concern
ing United States officials. "They are
scoundiels and thieves To stnctlj com
ply with the customhouse regulations
will be of no avail to jou If jou carry
auvthingfor which duties must he paid, of-
lei :o to the officer in attendance Do
the same thing, even in case jou have to
piv nothing, so that they may not bother
vou" Each passenger i elated his ex
perience in American customhouses, and all
added 'These officials are the meanest and
most miserable fellow s to be found anions
politicians ' "
And now he indorses this b refusing to
denj it He does not affirm this view , but
he will i oi den j it
Again bis characterisation of the Aincri
cm woman is without parallel for lmpu
deuce He sajs "She is adventurous
and bold She travels alone, protected
more b fear of the law than bj the
respect which she inspires ' 1
huve seen American women living at the
hotels inC illforni i.in Paris, all over Europe,
.ilwajs cxtravag mt, spending more money
thin their husbands of whom tuej do
not know much moiipv earned God
knows how or where" roll opportunttv
is given nimtodisivow these sentiments
His apologists saj they were expressed m
the ineperience of jouth But he does
not take the trouble to correct them now.
The translation of these statements na
for sever.U davs public, within Senor De
Lome's knowledge, and he took no pains
tosav his conception of Amet lean character
has changed Yesterdav a limes reporter
calh d at the legation to isk if he still
thinks as he wiote His replv bj a sec re
tarv was tlmt he had nothing to say
The extracts from the book have bem
published in New ork, as well as in Wa-h
mgton, and there public sentiment Is bo
ginning alrcadj to take definite form The
Chiro Club, of Iirooklvn, will hold a meet
ing lodav Tor the discussion of the matter,
and it is believed that a request will be
forwarded to Sccretarv Sin rmanto demand
an explanation from the Spani-h ambn&-a
dor The American Daughtcisof the Revo
lution, in the same citj, have also takeu
up the subject, and will hold spe-clni meet
mgr, to denounce the writerof thW lxok and
ask that he either apologize or withdraw
from tli countrv
The talk here is strongest among the
members of the "WimodaughPls and other

President McKinley himself saw his
relatives off The party anived at the
Pennsylvania depot just a few minutes
before the train was ready to leav e When
the coach door was opened riesidentMc
Klnley stepped out and, waving the coach
man aside, himself assisted the ladies to
alight Then giv ing his arm to his mothei ,
and Capt Heistand escorting Miss Mc
Kinlej, they proceeded through the depot
to the train
The station was pretty well filled with
people at the time and everybody recog
nized tbe President and stopped to look
at him But he walked straight ahead,
taking no notice of the stir he was creat
ing further than to return courteously
sab tations This he scrupulously did in
every instance, winning even the hearts of
the grimy train hands by lifting his hat
in response to then bows
When the car was reached he tenderly
put his arm about his mothei and hulf
lifted her up to the platform The car
was brilliantly lighted and the blinds
raised so tlmt evervtliing that happened
within could be plainly seen bv the crowd
which had assembled on the platform.
President McKinley , his arm still around
his mother, assisted her to a chair and
then turned around to shake hands with
the two colored poiters, who stood bow
ing obsequiously, evidently commending
his mother to theli care A large bouquet
graced a table in the car
The group stood chatting foi a moment
until the conductor shouted "All aboard,"
when tho President kissed Ins mother and
sister and stepped ort juit as the train
started He returned to his carriage as
quickly as the curious crow d would allow
him and was driven rapidly back to the
White House

Chairman Bell made a statement from

ures Ho would saj, however, that this
surplus would be betwtcn S7.000 and
$8,000. The appropriation to the supper
committee vvus SG.000, but there was h
loss on this ' function" of more than
$.5,000 A very small percentage of the
10,000 people at the ball forgot to dine
at home on that memorable evening
A letter was read fiom President Mc
Kinley, through his secretary, to Mr.
Bell, as follows
"My Dear Sir. At the request of the
President I write to inroim you of his
thorough appreciation of the very effi
cient services rendered by yourself and

he wishes me to ncknov ledge most hcartilj.
"The President would be glad to ba.o
this information made known to all of
your osviciates and assistants, whose co
operation contilbuted to the splendid suc

A letter to Mr Bell was also read from
Grand Marshal Porter, in which he said
in pars that he had '.'never seen commit
tees work so harmoniously and effectively
in the preparations and conduct of iu
augural ceremftules. The ball was the
most mangifict'iit sight ever seen and,
with the weather to help out, even the
chronic fault finders had nothing to crit-ii-ise
adversely '
Capt J. E Hell, chairman of the com

Negotiations in Behalf of the
Competitor Prisoners.
Secretary Sherman Said to Have
Cabled Consul General TLco to
Ask foi au Immedluto HeheuiJug
und 1 arly Disposition of tho
Cases of the Men.
It is understood that there has been
some important correspondence between
the State Department and Consul General
Lee, at Havana, in respect to the four
American prisoners on the Island who were
arrested on the steamer Competitor, nearlj
ft year ago, charged with landing arms for
the insui gents.
The consul general was requested by the
Gecretaij of State, by cablegram, ten days
ago, to make' a w ritten report of the status
of the cases, and that report has been re
ceived at the lepartment since the in
auguration. It lb or considerable length,
and details the circumstances of the ar
rests, trial, and conviction, and the subse
quent grant of a rehearing, at vv hich stage
of the proceedings the Spanish authorities
stopped, and the men h ive been in prison
ever since.
Secretary Sherman is understood to have
cabled Gen Lceyesterdaj a icqiiest to Le
communicated to the Spanish authorities
for an immediate rehearing and early dls
pos'tion of the cases
The four prisoners are Alfred Laborde,
a native American who was arretted
April 25, 1896, and condemned to death
May 8 following, William Glldea, a nat
uralized citizen, arrested and condemned
on same dates, Ona Melton, whose easels
parallel with the others, and Charles Bar
nitt, a. native, who was captured on land
und tried and condemned with the others
Through the intervention of counsel and
the repicen tat Ives of the American gov
ernment, the older for the execution of
these men was suspended and the new
trial opened Maj 11, 1S90, butit was not
proceeded with, and the prisoners were
continued in confinement in Cabana fort
ress, a British subject, 'William Leavltt,
who was supposed to be one of the Com
petitor crew, bi ing tried, condemned and
imprisoned with them
The request of the United States gov
ernment, diplomatically expressed, is for
a disposition of the cases as carlj as may
be practicable, and It is said the consul
general will as far us practicable, with
out a breach or the International etiquette,
interest himself in securing a speedy trial
and release of the prisoners if found to

River May Cut a New Bed at

Memphis, Tenn , March 11 Interest in
the flood situation is now intense at this
point, covering the Mississippi from Cairo
to Yicksburg. and vital interest hinges
on the stability of the levees
No report of broken levees has been
received, but those most directly con
cerned, including levee boards, govern
ment levee forces and railro id companies,
are miking preparations for any emcr

Central today mobilized its icpair trains

Twenty People Put Out of Their
Hornets on C Stxeet.
Twenty persons, men, women and chil
dren, huddled together and gating discon
solately w bile the effects from their little
homes were being thrown out into tho
street, was the sight which startled the
p isscrsby on C street, between Four and a
half and Sixth northwest, yesterday after
noon From noon until 4 o'clock Constable
Bravvnerand a foice of fifteen men trotted
back and forth from the house, bringing
out an assortment of furniture whicn,
for variety and si7e would have dono
credit to a department btoie
What was happening was an eviction of
the tenants of the house at No 1G6 G
street The unfortunate people, all col
ored, had no warning of the occurrence
however, as thej all sub rent their rooms
from the original tenant, Abraham Frank,
to whom they piid their rent promptly.
But he, so it iB claimed by Waggaman
Brothers, the agents for the house, had
not piid up for six. months His rent
is $25 a month, thus making the amount'
due $150
The house is a part of the Kimball
estate, which has been in litigation for a
number of years, and the agents, there
lore, did not press the matter But vv hen
the six months had passed and the rent
was still unpaid, they took out the writ
of ejectment
Thehousecontainstweutv Tour rooms, and
besides being the home of five families,
contained a looking glass factory a brass
ioundry, a printing office, and an eating
saloon, the effect of all of which were
put out iuto the street in the process
of eviction Theproprletor- of these various
establishments slept in the house, aud are
consequently without homes today
Ihe tenants of the house were William
Robinson and family, A W Sifax and
Ifamily, Horace Brown and family, John
Bell and family, Paul Leet and- family,
William Roy and Jeff Brown
Mrs Bell, one of the evicted women, sat
apparently dazed on a neighbor's porch,
holding in her arms h( r two children,
the elder of whom could not have been
over a yearold, and up to a late hour last
night she had secured no sleeping place
for herself and her little ones.
'Ihe property lav unguarded in the
streets all night, as the poor owners had
no means to pay a watchmin
The evicted tenants, the women es
peciallv, are loud in thoii denunciation
of Frank, and it would probably have
